Secret Cereal Recipe by Dr. Lazarus

Ben Lazarus, DOWith some GI conditions, a “food first” approach may be just what the doctor ordered in order to relieve your symptoms.  In fact, with conditions like constipation or constipation predominant Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), our very own Dr. Lazarus has a natural approach that he suggests, a ‘Secret Cereal Recipe” that he’s happy to share with us.

Dr. Lazarus states, “The cereal is one half bowl of frosted Mini Wheats, one half bowl of Raisin Bran, and Lactaid 100 nonfat milk. It has 210 cal, is high in protein and blended fiber, and is low in fat.  It’s great for people with mild to moderate constipation or constipation predominant IBS who do not have a gluten-sensitivity problem.  I’ve always been an advocate of “food first” in treatment of constipation, and this is a great breakfast.”

While more severe cases of constipation or IBS may require medical attention, this breakfast offers a lot of nutritious benefits that can promote a healthy GI tract, and is definitely worth incorporating into your diet even if you don’t currently have any GI issues.
